1 FOR USE BY PRINCIPALS Suggested Job Interview Questions for Prospective Physical Education Teachers A Quality Physical Education Program Will Keep Your School Fit to Achieve Prepared by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education NASPE Sets the Standard

2 2 Legislation 101 (Cont d) Make Hiring a Key Aspect of Assuring a Good Program According to NASPE s Physical Activity Guidelines, school children are encouraged to be physically active at least 60 minutes, and up to several hours per day. Assure that your students are taught the joy and reasons for being physically active by a certified physical education professional! Background Hiring high quality professional staff is one of the challenges faced by principals. Another is having a general understanding of the standards, issues and trends relative to all the content areas that make up a comprehensive education including physical education. The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE), which has been setting the standard for the professions for over 35 years, has developed guidelines and interview questions to help you to hire the best physical education faculty and contribute to the total education of your students. The preeminent national authority on physical education and a recognized leader in sport and physical activity, NASPE is a non-profit professional membership association that sets the standard for practice in physical education and sport. NASPE s 16,000 members include: K-12 physical education teachers, coaches, athletic directors, athletic trainers, sport management professionals, researchers, and college/university faculty who prepare physical activity professionals. The mission of NASPE is to enhance knowledge, improve professional practice, and increase support for high quality physical education, sport and physical activity programs. It is the largest of the five national associations that make the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation & Dance (AAHPERD). Please share these suggestions with other principals in your school district, as well as with chairs of your departments of physical education. We hope the following will help you better assess your program and prospective faculty members. Suggested Questions for Faculty in Physical Education 1.
